New discovery: Targeted oral probiotic destroys disease-causing bacteria in the mouth

Print Friendly

dental-check-up(NaturalHealth365) There is a strong and established link between oral health and overall health. If oral health suffers, the immune system is compromised. The mouth bacteria that are connected with periodontal disease can contribute to heart disease as well as kidney and liver problems, bone diseases and damaging effects to brain health.

Dental problems are extremely common in the Western world, largely because of an unhealthy diet with too many carbohydrates and sugars. Around 96 percent of adults over age 64 have cavities, and one-fifth of this group has some form of untreated tooth decay.

Don’t overlook the health risks associated with gum disease

Periodontal disease (gum disease) is a big problem, too, affecting over 70 percent of older adults. Advanced periodontitis can result in the weakening of bones and eventual tooth loss. The inflammation of periodontal disease has been linked with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease as well as pulmonary issues like pneumonia and COPD.

A major factor in diseases within the mouth is an imbalance in the microbial community there. Oral health issues are caused by unhealthy organisms outnumbering the healthy bacteria that support good oral health.

Targeted probiotic improves your ‘inner terrain’ and prevents bacterial overgrowth

The oral microbiome refers to complex microbial populations that interact to protect and support the mucous membranes and gum and tooth surfaces. Changes in this balance can cause excessive acid, inflammation, gum disease and other health problems.

Now there is a convenient way to improve oral health and reduce the risk of gum and mouth problems like periodontal disease. A unique, targeted probiotic can assist with keeping disease-causing bacteria at bay while promoting beneficial bacteria types that actually support healthy gums and teeth.

Studies have shown that using the powerful oral probiotic S. salivarius M18 causes a substantial reduction in plaque buildup, bleeding of the gums, gingivitis, periodontal disease and the development of pockets between the tooth roots and gums.

Taking the probiotic S. salivarius M18 results in the production of an enzyme that loosens and dissolves biofilms within the mouth. Other probiotic strains like K12 and M18 help to reduce levels of undesirable bacteria and treat the source of many oral health problems at its root. K12 has been known to help activate the body’s immune system in 24 hours or less.

The first line of defense for sustaining health and well-being

A targeted probiotic can be pivotal in restoring bacterial balance within the mouth and maintaining overall health in affected systems. The mouth is the first line of defense and gatekeeper for bacteria and microbes that enter the body.

Promoting beneficial mouth bacteria while reducing the harmful types can now be easily accomplished with probiotics. Other benefits of oral probiotocs include reduced bad breath and healthier nose, ears, sinuses, throat and lungs.

Good oral health is foundational to overall health, and probiotics just might be a key to maintaining ideal balance within this ecosystem.

    I have gum disease and have had many periodontal procedures. They have not taken away the condition. In fact i think they added to the problem.

      I will give you the best recipe EVER for gum disease ;take 100-120ml of organic sunfloweroil put it in a glass botle preferably brown or tinted glass add to this; 7 drops of cypres oil, 7 drops of clove oil. 7 drops of lemon oil , 7 drops of manuka oil and 7 drops of oregano oil ,close the bottle with lid/cap and shake it well. Take a tablespoon once a day in your mouth and swish it around untill you feel the consistency changing from thick oily to thinner /watery… then spit it out, this procedure takes about 15 minutes or so, rinse your mouth and resume your normal dental care /brush your teeth etc. This oilthingy is called oil pulling there are lots of ways to do it but i can only guarantee you that this one works, the formula with the essential oils is time tested by me and some other people. try not to swallow the oil it’s not poisonous though so don’t worry if you have a little accident. This recipe is for adults only and pregnant woman should ask their doctor if it’s okay. Also it’s a good idea to clean your tongue with a silver or copper tongscraper a few times a day to get rid of bacterial build up on the tongue/throath area, just don’t do this immediately after you ate something cause it can cause a certain reflex so you might end op vomiting your food. This helped me to get rid of an infected tooth pocket when everything else failed.

    My dentist sells mouthwash. It has a warning label on it. I bought it without reading it and just was told I need it. I can’t return it I opened it before looking at the warning.

    I have periodontal disease and was told this was going to help it. No where in the talk was the information in this article mentioned.

    Who thinks that main street dental practices are going to find this information? If they do there would be a lost of revenue, so this information will never reach their patients through their practice.

    This sounds so good on so many levels. Probiotics are good for intestinal health, while being antifungal and antibacterial. This would be a miracle worker for both the mouth and other parts of the body.

  • Tina Rubin

    This recommendation is also an intestinal tonic. How convenient to have something that works on both.
